Both Roger Smith and Jack Lemmon were associated with Mister Roberts (1955). Lemmon played Ensign Pulver in the movie, and Smith played Lieutenant Roberts in the television series. See more »
The story takes place in September 1945, but all the women's clothes and hairstyles (both military and civilian) are strictly 1957, most noticeably, lack of shoulder pads, and longer skirt lengths than as in 1945. See more »
It is being shown on TCM, as of today 07182008. I've never seen it before, but am watching it now.
I was amazed at the number of stars I saw listed in the beginning credits. I imagine it will be the same way people now view Ocean's 11 (the original) and in 30 years, view the remakes.
I love Some Like it Hot. It shines mostly because of Jack Lemmon. His comedy as a woman is a riot, especially in the scenes with the old millionaire. Another great movie of his, and hard to find is "The Landlady" with Fred Astaire and Kim Novak.
Anyway, I thank goodness for my DVR and TCM.
